Product Description

Product Description

SideQuests are stand-alone stories or novellas that chronicle the heroes, villains, and adventures in The Foreworld Saga across numerous ages. They can be read with or without prior knowledge of The Foreworld Saga. Symposium is set in the Classical Era.

The Shield-Brethren are a secret martial order that has defended the West for centuries. Now, the origins of the order are revealed in this stunning three-issue SideQuest comic book.

While the conservative ruling powers of decadent Athens arrange to have them watched, four young men go to a dinner party with Plato—Xenophon, the king of Macedon; a pair of Spartans; and the most beautiful woman in Athens. The question on everyone's mind: What form would an ideal city take?

The answer is a quest, and a dream…

This comic contains explicit content and is recommended for mature readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice backstory 24 Nov. 2013

Charming and literate, if sometimes hard to read on an iPad. Nice to think that the Foreworld grows out of two of Plato's finest dialogues.
